Manchester City are on the verge of completing a deal to sign Jack Grealish from Aston Villa.
According to The Athletic, the Premier League champions are set to shatter the Premier League transfer record by paying a fee of around £100 million for the 25-year-old England international.
The report states that Aston Villa are now on course to accept Manchester City’s record-breaking offer, and Grealish will become the most expensive British player of all time.
Previously, the record was held by Gareth Bale.
The Aston Villa player is now expected to finalise personal terms and undergo a medical with the Premier League giants.
Meanwhile, Daily Mail adds that the player will complete his move to Manchester City today, and he is due in Manchester later.
Grealish had an outstanding season with Aston Villa last year, and he impressed with his cameos in the European Championships.
The 25-year-old midfielder is one of the most exciting talents around Europe right now, and he could prove to be a quality long term acquisition for Manchester City.
Grealish is still quite young, and he is likely to develop further with coaching and experience. Working with a manager like Pep Guardiola could help him fulfil his potential at the Manchester club.
The Aston Villa midfielder could be the long term replacement for Manchester City legend David Silva who has recently left the club.
A player of his ability deserves to play in the Champions League, and a move to City seems ideal for him.
